Nailed it! This was your response when your friends asked how you did on the interview for the job you’d been so excited about. You had talked about it all week, and finally, the day came. You looked good, too! Hair done — nails conservatively short and painted neutral — not your usual outlandish purple with black dots. You even managed to wear a knee-length skirt, a real shocker to your friends who never even saw your legs before!
But then you get a call from the agency that referred you to the job, and you hear those dreaded words: “They decided to go with someone else.”
No, not again, you scream!
After you calm yourself down, you may do the same thing this woman does.
I replay the interview in my head until eventually I’ve figured out why the company rejected me: I wore an ugly outfit. I talked too much. I’m a generally terrible person and no company would ever want me as an employee.
It’s never occurred to me that I could actually find out why the company turned me down.
